This fall-colored bag reminded me of the book Apples and Pumpkins, even though there are pears and flowers instead of pumpkins. The rich pumpkin color mixed with yellows, tans and light & dark denim is a wonderfully warm-colored bag for this time of year.
The little focal denim piece on the flap has embroidered corduroy flowers and fruit from a teeny pair of Gymboree jeans. It is surrounded by a vintage quilt piece, orange swirly velvet, pumpkin bread corduroy, yellow and white striped denim, a polished cotton decorator stripe and is bordered at the bottom by rich, dark denim.
Once again, the back of the bag is just as, if not more than, fancy as the front. There are three pockets across the strip of fabrics including the front panel of checked, tan cotton pants with a usable pocket. Behind the waistband is a large pocket. And the orange velvet lines the top edge of the left pocket behind another vintage quilt piece from a pattern.
The straps tie all the fabrics and colors together, including of course, the antique quilt design, both denim shades and the rich designer fabric that is in several shades of orange. The straps are adjustable and are currently tied at 38 inches.
The under side of the flap and the entire interior is a chartreuse patterned fabric that feels like chenille. We all know how much I love chenille. :o) There is a large denim pocket inside with orange rickrack and a yellow button for trim.
This bag is slightly taller than the regular BFZ messenger bags. I was experimenting with a no-seam bottom and the bag ended up being 15 1/2" long, 14" tall and just shy of 4" wide. Plenty of movie popcorn could hide in this gem. This would make a lovely Thanksgiving gift.
